Patron started his life in entertainment by illustrating how dogs can be trained for search work. And now, he's employed by the government. He found over 200 bombs in the town of Chimigov since February. Let's meet Patron, the hero dog who has a similar entertainer-turned-hero storyline as Ukrainian President Zelensky himself.

(Thank you, Christy, for the suggestion!)

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-60506682 - the intentionally targeted misinformation attacks and straight-up lies in Russian state media - a common war tactic to get people on your side for terrible things, we see it here, too, will continue to persuade those who consume Russian media to believe this isn’t real. The attacks by Putin, using Russian tanks, bombs, and guns on the Ukrainian people is real. And a powerful interview, mandatory reading, I think, from Time Magazine with Volodymyr Zelenski: https://time.com/6171277/volodymyr-zelensky-interview-ukraine-war/
